1 killed in accident caused by alleged drunk driver

When drivers aren't paying attention to the road or get behind the wheel while intoxicated, they put everyone else, as well as themselves, at risk of injuries or death. When you're in a collision caused by one of these drivers, you can work with your attorney to file a personal injury claim for your lost wages, medical costs and other financial losses.

If a loved one is killed, family members may be able to seek compensation through a claim, like the family of this person may do. In this case, one person was killed in an accident in North Carolina, according to a June 13 report. The news has stated that a 2015 Dodge Ram had collided with a dump truck parked on The Cape Boulevard.

When the accident took place, the other person involved was killed. Police have not said who that person was, if it was someone in the dump truck, or if it was a pedestrian at the scene at the wrong time, but they have stated that the driver of the Dodge Ram fled the scene immediately. He was apprehended later that day and arrested.

The investigation of this collision is ongoing, and police have not yet called it a hit-and-run crash. The 41-year-old driver suffered minor injuries in the collision, as well. For now, police have said that the man's toxicology report is still pending, but they have charged the man with several charges including felony death by vehicle, DWI, reckless driving to endanger, resisting/delaying/obstruction public officers, failure to maintain lane control and careless and reckless operation.
